Urban Academy is a platform and network that brings together multidisciplinary research, teaching and societal impact in the field of urban studies. It is a partnership of five organizations: Aalto University, University of Helsinki, City of Espoo, City of Helsinki and City of Vantaa.
Urbaria and Aalto Living+ platform cooperate closely within Urban Academy to bring together and promote the newest research done in the field of Urban Studies. The encounters for the researchers are organized in the Urban Lunch Hour seminar. Similarly, cooperation has been extended to education since 2017 when the Master’s Programme in Urban Studies and Planning became a joint programme of both universities.
Urbaria collaborates in many ways with the city of Helsinki including research projects, research funding, seminars, workshops and science sparring. City of Helsinki is a partner via Urban Academy. Urban Lunch Hour seminar is organized in close cooperation with Urban Research and Statistics Unit of the city.
KATUKO (Urban Studies Collective) is formed of PhD students from different Finnish universities, faculties, disciplines and viewpoints with the common factor that we wish to meet and discuss in a low threshold manner with fellows in the same professional situation. Peer-support has developed into a way of interaction.
